The pleasant roasted flavor of Hojicha comes from gentle pan-roasting of the tea leaves, imbuing a light, smoky, yet subtly sweet complexion.
The roasting process to produce Hojicha Tea results in reduced caffeine content and a total smoothness unlike that of other Japanese green teas. With very little bitterness, hojicha is often enjoyed before and after meals – even after dinner.
Freshly harvested from Uji, the prestigious center of tea-growing in Japan, our Hojicha is 100% Farm-direct. Renowned for earthen aroma, smooth-to-sip composition, and health promoting properties.

Why choose us?
The Matcha.com Guarantee
Like you, our co-founder Dr. Weil is equally picky about what he's putting in his body. It took years for matcha.com to create our matcha-growing collective in Japan to develop what our customers often call "The Purest and most potent matcha on the planet!
What makes our Matcha Best
It was pleasing to see growing awareness of matcha in America, but we were dismayed by the low qualities available when visiting cafés, tea shops, and restaurants. So, on our following trips to Japan, we purchased small tins of the quality tea to bring home, along with tea bowls, scoops, and whisks. Soon we were in the habit of drinking a bowl of matcha twice a day! Turning loved ones onto it, and leading a growing audience into giving it a try.
Alright, I'm trying this matcha thing.
